Mike Tyson's tears of fear

In an episode of his Hotboxin' podcast with MMA neo-fighter Claressa Shields, the former world champion recalled the emotions he would feel right before stepping in for a match. He said:

I was crying before the fights because I was pretty scared, and being scared I knew I was going to really do something bad to this guy and his family wasn't going to like it. Then I was really going to really be guilty and feel bad at the end.

How Mike Tyson relayed himself

Very nervous before entering the ring, Mike Tyson, in addition to crying, used another technique to relax. He used to have sex before his fights, which is a good way to get pent-up energy out.

This secret was revealed by Rudy Gonzalez, a friend and driver of the boxer, in an interview with The Sun:

One of Mike's biggest secrets was that he needed to have locker room sex before fights. I had to find a woman, whoever it was. He was like, 'If I don't have sex, I'll kill this guy in seconds '
Mike needed to break free to unleash some of the strength he had. So I hid girls in bathrooms and locker rooms. Sometimes he would come in with them for a minute. cracked his neck and said, 'Okay, this guy is going to live tonight’. His biggest fear was killing someone in that ring. He knew he could do it.
